The Montreal Canadiens are the Yankees of hockey. The Habs have won 24 Stanley Cups in their history -- and captain Jean Beliveau is responsible for five of them. He's the only player in NHL history to win five cups as his team's captain. (As a player, Beliveau won a total of 10 cups. As an excutive, he won seven more.) The Hall of Famer was also the winner of the first Conn Smythe Trophy, awarded in 1965 to the MVP of the playoffs. Beliveau ranks 10th all time in playoff goals with 79 and is tied for 14th all time in playoff points with 176.
